Archer, Clive. (2001) "Norway and European integration". In: UNSPECIFIED, Madison, Wisconsin. (Unpublished)
This paper is a brief examination of Norway’s position since its 1994 vote to stay out of the EU: to what extent is it a small European state trying to adapt to the developments of European integration? The conceptual framework uses the works of Katzenstein, Thorhallsson and Rosenau in examining features of a small state that may affect its attitude to the European integration process. After looking at background material on Norway and its economic and political situation, a number of hypotheses are tested against early material on Norway and the EEA, Schengen and CESDP. While Norway has shown classic acquiescent adaptation to the EEA and Schengen, it has taken a more preservative stance in the case of defence and security matters.
